Since 2004, Australia’s Circa has been at the frontier of the circus arts — creating performances that challenge, thrill and delight. “Beyond” blends dynamic circus acts like trapeze and Chinese pole with cheeky feats of strength, Rubik’s Cubes and blindfolds, making it a comical take on the possibilities of the human body pushed to the extreme.

Set to a mix of show tunes, ballads and electronica, the show reveals a world emerging from multiple stages within stages — small, red-curtained worlds that take the audience to a cabaret, a zoo and even an asylum.

Details: 8 p.m. Friday. $10-$45. Bass Concert Hall, 2350 E. Campus Drive. texasperformingarts.org.
